How to watch Impeachment: American Crime Story
Impeachment: American Crime Story will premiere on FX at 10pm ET.
The series will be available the following day on Hulu for those with a paid subscription to the platform.
This is the third installment of the anthology series.
Horror-extraordinaire producer Ryan Murphy adapted the series from the bestseller by lawyer Jeffrey Toobin titled, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal that Nearly Brought Down a President.
What did Monica Lewinsky say about Impeachment: American Crime Story?
Lewinsky’s character will be played by actress Beanie Feldstein in the series.
Lewinsky spoke to Vanity Fair on August 6, 2021, about the series, saying: “People have been co-opting and telling my part in this story for decades.
“In fact, it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve been fully able to reclaim my narrative.”
Additionally, she participated in a question and answer segment with Vanity Fair and revealed that her “greatest regret” in life is “that some of my choices have caused others suffering,” Lewinsky said.
Lewinsky is one of the producers of the FX drama and will not even give herself a pass when it comes to her infamous thong flash.
While this was something that actually happened, writer Sarah Burgess revealed in an interview with THR that she originally kept the scene out of the script for fear of “re-traumatizing Monica,” however, Lewinsky was the one who called for the scene to be included.
